Please, FCloud9, will you elaborate upon your choice of generators and your decision process? Interesting that you were in a position to do some comparison to those operated by others over the holiday weekend. Thank you in advance.

View From Your Airstream Door

We bought a new Westinghouse i2000 watt generator online after we booked our trip in Adirondacks since no hookups at many state parks where we expect to camp.

We read a the portable generator threads on the forum where most members raved about Honda & Yamaha. However, we tend to utilize many we'll researched references & found the Westinghouse portable unit was rated high for efficiency & durability. Distinguishing Features Of Westinghouse Portable Generators
150 plus years of experience in power generation gives Westinghouse an impeccable reputation. Dedicated single lineup of portable generators that deliver progressively more power and better technology. Designed keeping ergonomics in mind. Engines R&D, manufacturing done in North America. Good and reliable customer service is reported by online owners but we have not had any issues thus far. I'm not a large person & my hands are often stiff & sore from rheumatoid arthritis, however, I cannot only unload it from the car but actually start it up quite easily.

Although our 2014 FC 20' FB is equipped to install solar; we preferred to have a variety of experiences competed before purchasing mor "stuff".
All camp meals prepared & cooked on propane cooktop , charcoal grill or over wood campfire. Attempted to warms side in microwave but too big amp draw. No biggie though...can live w/o micro convection as we will not likely buy another generator. Genny & gas can take up quite a bit of space in our Tourareg. I ha just purchased a Lodge Cast Iron Large Fajita Pan to expand healthy meal options over campfire with great success. Still considering Cobb Grill or thermo cooker....will see as we increase our travel expeditions. We could not be happier with our choice of our first Airstream FC FB 20'!!!

I read the details on the Westinghouse unit. Two missing items of importance - not pure sine wave output which is important for electronics and all engine components and generator made in China. Also, the sound (db level) is substantially higher than either Yamaha or Honda products....

This was a common sunset, when we spent the summer of '06 in our Airstream, in Arizona.
